The local Liberal Democrat ward councilors are concerned about the impact of graffiti on the area and criticize Network Rail for not taking prompt action to remove it. They believe that the failure to address graffiti on their property is sending the wrong message to vandals and contributing to a further spread of graffiti in the area. Councillor Ashley Mason expressed disappointment in Network Rail’s response to graffiti on the railway bridge and other property, stating that it is encouraging vandals to continue their destructive behavior. He also highlighted instances where graffiti appeared on Network Rail property without accountability, leading to further damage in the community. The councilors are urging Network Rail to take responsibility for addressing the issue and preventing a downward spiral of neglect. The Press has requested a comment from Network Rail regarding the situation.
